BETA PHOTO: Avalon, showing most of the major features. Note:...
Tarot Wall is the leftmost area on the Second Tier. Home to a number of good 5.10 and 5.11 sport routes, including The Devil (11c), Lust (10c), The Tower (10a), and Wheel of Fortune (10a). Earth Angel (12d) is a difficult testpiece that has seen very few ascents.
A fun new route, The Magician (9 or 10), climbs an arete at the left side of Tarot Wall.

Climb up the talus field above the Tyrolean Traverse. A dirt trail starts at the top of the talus. Continue up the trail a short distance until the trail splits; take the left branch to get to Tarot Wall. Follow the trail left around a shoulder to the road side of the crag. The first route you'll see is The Hanged Man at a low overhang with a bolt.
If you started your day climbing on the First Tier, you can continue up the path left from there and reach the left side of Tarot Wall, by the route Earth Angel.
Also on the left side of Tarot Wall is a trail heading downstream toward Solaris.
